Women & Equity Survey: Share your Efforts
The League wants your help in advancing equity and women’s participation in bike advocacy. You game? We thought you might be.
We’ve recently launched two initiatives to start institutionalizing some real change. The Women Bike program is empowering, engaging and elevating more women to get on a bike and ride, as well as influence the bike advocacy world. We’re also developing a full-scale Equity Initiative, with our new Equity Advisory Council charged with guiding the organization’s efforts to become a model for equity, diversity and inclusivity both in its internal and external programming.
Both initiatives are off to a great start — and now its time to make sure we keep the momentum going by highlighting the work you’ve done and are doing around equity and women in biking. We need your help to:
- Identify initiatives related to equity and women around the country
- Understand what resources would be helpful to YOU as we move forward
- Benchmark key demographics among cycling organizations currently
So please take a moment to fill out our brief, online survey by April 12th — and circulate to other organizations that might be interested, as well.
***Extra bonus: Is there work around issues of equity or women in cycling that you can’t wait to tell someone? Well, stop waiting and post in the comments section. Who knows? Your story might be our next post!
